GLENN Keast says he is “feeling better and stronger each day” as he continues his recovery from a cardiac arrest.

The St Mary’s co-coach, who was moved out of ICU at Geelong’s University Hospital to the cardiac ward on Tuesday, has taken to social media for the first time since collapsing at training at Anthony Costa Oval on Saturday morning.

“I just wanted to say thanks to everybody who has reached out to me or anyone in my family with amazing kindness and support since Saturday when I collapse(d) at footy training of a cardiac arrest,” Keast wrote on Facebook on Thursday morning.

“I’m feeling better and stronger each day, and hopefully we will get something sorted with my heart (as they still aren’t totally sure what happened, which is a good thing as it’s nothing obvious).

“So more scans to work it out, and (it) looks like they will put my own portable defibrillator (in) to ensure if it happens again, I’m giving (sic) a shock.”

Keast, who has labelled the incident as a “speed bump” signed off with the following words; “stay safe and live life”.
